Together, We Conserve

by Shea Homes Arizona on October 11, 2011

Throughout the 125 plus years since the founding of the JF Shea Companies, Shea has been involved in the construction of water projects. For example, Shea helped construct the Hoover Dam, the nation’s largest man-made reservoir and the Bonneville Dam, which supplied essential power for the Portland-area shipyards and aluminum plants, essential to America’s success in World War II.

Today, we still focus on water. As a family owned homebuilder, our goal is to leave the world better than we found it. That’s why we concentrate on energy efficiency and water conservation as we construct each home and why we encourage our homeowners to take the same care by offering tips for personal conservation.

That’s just one of many reasons that we are partnering with the Salt River Project (SRP) in the Together We Conserve Campaign. Although many people think of SRP as just the electric company, water delivery has long been the cornerstone of their business. For more than 100 years, SRP has delivered water to the Valley through a system of rivers, lakes, dams and canals.

SRP, like Shea, has water in their genes.

As SRP continues with forward-looking water management strategy, Shea Homes Arizona is uniting with them to focus our water conservation efforts, both as a homebuilder and as homeowners. We hope you’ll join us.

The drop below represents one person’s commitment to conserving water. Imagine 10 people each holding a drop. Then 100. Or 1,000. Suddenly, one drop becomes part of something bigger. Together, we can make an impact that will last generations.

Here are a few ways we hope you’ll show your support for water conservation: 

1)      Pledge to conserve water at

2)      Upload your photo and a water conservation tip to win prizes.

3)      Join others who’ve posted their “drop” photo on our site.

4)      T ell your friends and family to upload their “drop” photo and conservation tip.

5)      People with the best tips will star in part of the 2012 ad campaign.

6)      Practice water conservation at home and work.

Hats off to you guys. Conservation is a big challenge among all businesses who decide to take it on. While conservation on the scale your company has achieved is remarkable; every little bit counts. Its important to help out when/where you can….. even if its just a little. Great work! And way to lead by example! Dave
